Have you ever had a prospective renter walk into one of your apartments, take a look at the floor, and then back out? Whether you have or haven’t, we can promise you that the kind of floor coverings you have in your units factors into renters’ decision making processes. Comfortable, high quality flooring helps to attract more renters and raise the value of your units. Low quality flooring will do the opposite. If you’re looking for a new type of flooring to install in your apartments, you should take a look at the many options vinyl offers.
Advantages of Vinyl Flooring
There are a lot of different reasons why you might want to choose vinyl flooring over other options, some of which include:
- Convenience: Part of the reason that vinyl flooring is so popular for apartment owners is that they are convenient to install. Available in either tile or sheet form, it won’t take long for a professional contractor to cover a wide area with vinyl flooring
- Return on Investment: The ROI for many kinds of vinyl flooring is quite good. The material itself is cheaper than other flooring types, like wood or carpet, and it lasts a pretty long time.
- Versatility: You can find vinyl in a myriad of different styles, making it easier to match the flooring to the rest of the apartment.
- Maintenance: Vinyl is very easy to keep clean. It doesn’t soak up water or retain dirt the way carpet does. The only real threat to vinyl is sharp objects, which shouldn’t be a problem unless your renters are wearing golf cleats all over the place.
When to Install Vinyl Flooring
The ideal time to install vinyl flooring depends very much on the individual property. Generally, though, there are a few factors to consider. How long have you had the current flooring in the apartment? If it’s been awhile since it’s been changed out, that might be reason enough. Obvious wear and tear or fading is another great reason; nobody wants worn out flooring when they first move into their new apartment. It’s also perfectly acceptable to just install vinyl flooring to increase the unit’s value. Proper flooring goes a long way in that department, after all.
